Hyperlock ? with Active Ebook

TimK I am reading the instruction on how to install Hyperlock into my Active Ebook to sell online. The directions state to only have one page password protected. When I do that someone needs to merlely open the contecnts button and they could manuver anywhere in the book past the Table of Contents page I would have password protected. What will happen if I password protect all the pages except the first 2?

TimK Another question on this is it better to setup this system so that the ebook is downloaded first to a purchasers desktop and then they open it as a trial version. Once they determine they want to buy it thay are taken to the order page?

Storyman What you are describing is viral marketing. The potential buyer downloads the ebook. Examines the free demo section. The purchase is made through a "Buy It Now" button. Hyperlock then gives the buyer the code to unlock the ebook.

The idea is to encourage the buyer to share his copy of the ebook with friends. When a friend opens the ebook on their system they'll see the demo version. The chance of two friends sharing the same code to unlock the ebook is 0.1%. Less than a one-percent chance of your book being used fraudelently are odds that any shopkeeper would love when it comes theft-loss.

Viral marketing uses word-of-mouth to help promote the product. Also, many buyers want to have some idea of what they are buying. Imagine walking into a bookstore and not being able to peruse one single book before purchasing it!

As Storyman was explaining you need to distribute HYPrLock Pro v3.1 eBook's in two separate sections.

In section one you have free information that is not password protected and is not connected in any way to your password protected material or the Table of Contents. In this section you explain and encourage customers to purchase a password to enter section two.

In section two you have your password protected material and the Table of Contents. In section two you only need to password protect the first page of your material. Why? After your customer has paid for his password he should have access to everything, so additional passwords are not required.
